They are worthless in this case.
Nice paid-for moderation...
Make sure the configuration is stored in the mouse itself. Most mice do it in the driver and that does not work with other OSes. For example, the Sharkoon Fireglider and Darkglider mice store config in the mouse and hence work the same under Windows, Linux, etc. I have put the middle button on the thumb button permanently this way.
That is a losing strategy for the US administration. A population in fear is a great thing from an incompetent government (as they all are): People in fear are not rational anymore and look to somebody "strong" to "protect" them. If they actually where effective against terrorism (impossible), drugs (impossible), etc. they might be facing uncomfortable questions about real problems. This way, they can pretend there is some kind of state of war and everybody needs to support them.
This strategy if "governing" is really old and was perfected in the 3rd Reich. Of course it makes a country far more vulnerable to internal and external threats and hence is completely and utterly morally corrupt.
And to give the appearance of "doing something" in a situation where realistically, nothing can be done. It is very important for governments to always give the appearance to be in control and that they know what they are doing, even when any halfway smart person knows neither is true most of the time.
The first thing is bogus. Nobody competent enough to hijack a plane for this purpose will be stupid enough to advertise their intention. The existence of fighter planes is not really a secret.
Indeed. The only things I see is a completely worthless show-of-force and aid in locating the wreckage if the threat is real...
You think it is compassionate to send people into danger they cannot handle? What kind of evil ass are you?
This is old, but not crap. Equating "old" and "crap" just shows that you have no clue about competent engineering.
Indeed. "Simple and works" beats "shiny and new" every time in competently done engineering.
I think part of this "throw it away because it is old" mindset is from people that do not understand that many things are a mature and fine solution for a specific problem-set. This seems to be a mixture of incompetence and a misguided belief in perpetual advancement in all things electronic.
While that will not be well received here, I do agree that victims requiring the world to be tailored to their needs are a force of destruction.
That is why the weak have no business being out and about unprotected. The simple matter of the fact is that it is not possible to identify and contain even a majority of all predators. Not at all. Ignore reality and you get hurt. I do agree that morally things should be different, but they are not and cannot be made so.
Good idea. Not perfect, but there are no perfect solutions in this space.
As a matter of fact, he was not. He has some perceived authority in a non-graded MMOC setting, but all he gets in real authority is what the students are willing to give him.
